Volunteers: San Francisco Pride

Volunteers at SF Pride

SF Pride Volunteer Information

  • Sundance Pre-Pride Dance. Saturday, June 29, 7:30 to 11:00 pm. NEW LOCATION. Women's Building, 3543 18th St. near Valencia. $10.
  • Sundance Festival Pride Dance. Sunday, June 30, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. Golden Gate near Larkin. (Same location as last year.)

The San Francisco Pride weekend remains one of the biggest weekends of the year for Sundance Saloon, second only to the Sundance Stompede. Even though the weekend is scaled back a bit, dozens of volunteers are still needed to produce our two back-to-back dances Saturday night and Sunday day.

You do not have to use this system to volunteer. You can contact the volunteer coordinator with your name, e-mail address, cell phone number, and shifts desired, and we will get you signed up. Or call us at 415-820-1403 and leave a message with the above information.

Special note to Sundance Saloon volunteers: The Sundance Saloon volunteer system is different and separate from our Sundance Special Event volunteer system. We suggest that you use the same User ID (e-mail address) and password for both systems.
